Madison Boulder

Yesterday I took Devin, Dakota, Ivy and Devin's best friend, Liam to the Madison Boulder. Madison Boulder is the largest known erratic in New England, and among the largest in the world. Madison Boulder is a huge granite rock measuring 83 feet in length, 23 feet in height above the ground, and 37 feet in width. It weighs upwards of 5,000 tons! A part of this roughly rectangular block is buried, probably to a depth of ten to twelve feet. I love to bring people there for the first time. When we pulled up Liam gasped and whispered, "Wow!"

It is the most breathtaking thing here in the small town of Madison, NH!
